Yes, per the D800 brochure on page 14 that shows the System Chart. It clearly shows that the EN-EL18 can be used in the MB-D12 Grip. Below is the current pre-order Adorama cost for all items related to the grip for the D800.
1. Nikon MB-D12, Multi Battery Power Pack / Grip $449.95
2. Nikon MH-26 Battery Charger for EN-EL18 Rechargeable Battery $349.95
3. Nikon EN-EL18 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery Pack $169.95
4. Nikon BL-5 Battery Chamber Cover for D-800 DSLR Cameras $28.50

Hope this helps and I can't wait to get my D800!
Best regards.

What are the differences between the EN-EL4a and the EN-EL18 batteries? Can an EN-EL4a be used in a D4 body and can they be used in the same charger?

The difference between the EN-EL4a ad EN-EL18 is the physical size of the batteries are different. The amount of charge they can hold. The EN-EL18 having the higher capacity.

The only battery that will power the D4 is the EN-EL18 per the D4 brochure http://www.nikonusa.com/en_US/o/QD8q_b3vH8Re-n_CPUtpjBl-qbE/PDF/D4_brochure.pdf
The MH-26 charger is used with the EN-EL18 battery. For the EN-EL4a you can use the MH-21 single battery charger or the MH-22 which is a dual battery charger. Note: the MH-22 charges one battery fist and once that battery is fully charged the second battery gets charged.

The EN-EL 18 is a rechargeable Li-ion battery (MH-26 Battery Charger) that is used to power the D4 Nikon D-SLR camera. The EN-EL4a cannot be used in the D4 (different design).

Battery Life 2,600, may vary depending on shooting interval and length of time menus and images displayed. About 2 hours and 20 minutes are required to fully recharge the battery when no charge remains.

In the D4, the EN-EL18 battery will let you take 2,600 shots per charge. It takes about 2 hours and 20 minutes to fully charge the battery using the MH-26 battery charger when the battery is has been fully depleted.

Please see pages 440-441 of the D4 manual for information on calibrating EN-EL18 batteries with the MH-26 charger. These pages include a chart that shows how to use the charger's lights to determine the approximate amount of time that will be needed for calibration. A copy of the D4 manual can be downloaded from here: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an... .

If you are referring to the MB-D12, yes it is compatible with the EN-EL18 and EN-EL18A. The BL-5 battery chamber cover can be used to adapt either the EN-EL18 or EN-EL18a for use in the MB-12 battery grip for D800 or D810.
